Aerosmith have been reunited with the old touring van the Rock & Roll Hall of Famers used during their early years.

In the latest episode of History Channel series "American Pickers," hosts Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz presented the rock legends with the vintage van.

Wolfe and Fritz restored the vehicle and drove it to the Park MGM, the Las Vegas venue where the group has been playing residency this year.

"American Pickers" found the 1964 International Harvester Metro on the property of a Chesterfield, Massachusetts resident. The owner pulled the van out of the dirt and called Wolfe and Fritz to check it out.

"I'm afraid to say how long it is, but it's like 40 years since we've been in this thing," former Aerosmith guitarist Ray Tabano said. "I just flash back to when we first started the band, 'cause it was an amazing thing, you know. All of a sudden, here's this thing that you know, we lived in. It was like our dressing room, you know, it was like a rolling hotel."

The Pickers paid about $25,000 for the "piece of American rock and roll history."

"I had some of my finest memories in this van," drummer Joey Kramer said.
